After receiving the coveted partnership offer at the largest transportation law firm in the United States, Tim decided to leave big law behind to join a smaller firm where he has the flexibility to focus on making a meaningful and positive impact in the lives and businesses of his clients. Tim grew up in Southern Indiana and understands the importance of hard work, honesty, practicality, and availability when serving his clients’ diverse legal needs. Tim promises to do what he says he will do when he says he will do it and to work hard to earn the trust his clients place in him.

Tim routinely represents individuals and businesses that have been injured by the negligent act of others. Tim believes people whose lives have been disrupted by serious injuries caused by someone else’s negligence deserve compassion, trusted guidance, and a strong advocate. Tim understands the American jury system is often the only tool his clients have to hold insurance companies and large corporations financially accountable. He is willing and prepared to take cases to trial when insurers or corporations refuse to agree to fair settlements and going to court serves his clients’ best interests. Tim cannot guarantee the results of any case, but he promises to provide you with constant communication throughout the process and that no one will work harder to get justice and value for your case.

In addition to assisting clients who have suffered from serious injuries, Tim is passionate about helping his clients and their families make informed decisions, achieve peace of mind, and avoid unnecessary costs and complexity when preparing their estate, business, and farm succession plans. In addition, Tim works with his clients and their families to complete a smooth and efficient transfer of property when a loved one passes away through the probate process

Tim also enjoys partnering with small and medium size business and non-profits to provide practical and cost-effective legal advice and guidance to help these businesses and non-profits achieve their goals and continue to provide value and services to their community. Tim routinely advises small and medium size businesses on structures and strategies to mitigate risk in their business and implementing strategies to achieve potential compliance costs and/or tax savings.

When Tim is not working or representing his clients in the courtroom, Tim enjoys spending time with his wife, Cassey, three-year-old son, and their new Bernese Mountain Dog, Winnie, on their little patch of heaven in Greene County, Indiana. Tim and his family enjoying spending time together hiking, fishing, camping, traveling and anything else that involves the outdoors. Tim is excited for the time when he will be able to coach and cheer on his son in whatever sports or activities he decides to pursue. Tim and his family are also an active member of their church and community.

Client Reviews
"My experience with Beck Rocker & Habig went beyond expectations. I had never required legal services before my incident so I didn't know what to expect. Ashley and her team went out of their way to make the whole process as easy as it could be for their client. They exhibited a real concern for my health and well being and handled my case with integrity and professionalism. They have taken care of all the details and were very responsive to all my questions, and there were many of those. If I am ever again in need of legal services, Beck Rocker & Habig will be the firm I shall call! Thank you." D.W.
"Jeff Rocker - Excellent Attorney in Columbus, IN - Jeff Rocker has assisted my family on issues and I have had the pleasure to work with him through my company. He was extremely knowledgable in business law and explains it to his clients in easy to understand language. He has a solid reputation with the personnel in the courthouse and city hall. Not only does he have extensive knowledge in family and business law, but he has a "down to earth" personality that truly shines through. Often times people are afraid of attorneys or relunctant to seek advice from one, but Jeff Rocker makes you feel at ease the minute you meet him. He truly wants to help people and represent them in the best light he can." Dona
"Mr. Rocker has been nothing short of extraordinary in handling my affairs and the affairs of my company. As having been caught up in the real estate bubble several years back, my company has had its share of turmoil. Mr. Rocker has been there and continues to be here every step of the way. In addition to company issues that stemmed from the "bubble" bursting, personal issues have come my way as well. Jeff has handled each case with the utmost attention to detail. He continues to carefully explain his thought process and strategy in dealing with each situation as if it and I were his only case." Fred
